The modern-day Chrysler 300 was introduced in 2004, nearly four decades after the preliminary 300 “letter series” was terminated. Bolted on the company’s rear-wheel-drive LX platform with elements from the W211-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the 300 debuted with a host of V-6 and V-8 fuel powerplants, plus a diesel system for European markets. The full-size sedan was redesigned for the 2011 model year, getting numerous drivetrain and technology upgrades. The second-gen car received a facelift for 2015, that included a substantially customized front fascia to name a few features.

Inning accordance with Ralph Gilles (Chrysler head of design), the next-generation 300 will continue to have an unique existence. “In type or shape, the car’s constantly going to have its own visual.

Although he declined to elaborate, Gilles did suggest the company is considering more than one style for the next-generation sedan. One thing is particular though, the redesigned 300 will maintain some of the details that assisted make the first-generation car an immediate classic.

The existing 300 returns as much as 31 mpg on the highway, putting it above both the Chevy Impala and the Ford Taurus.
